Alexandra Burke has told Reveal all about her designer handbag collection... and it sounds amazing!

The 'Broken Heels' singer stepped out in London last night (18 September) to celebrate a night of fashion at the Cosmopolitan #FashFest, and it's fair to say she looked pretty incredible for the occasion.

Sporting a printed shirt dress and racy over-the-knee boots, Alexandra turned more than a few heads as she struck a pose on the red carpet.

Reveal grabbed a quick chat with the starlet to talk through her gorge outfit, along with her top autumn style buy and her impressive arm candy collection...

"This shirt dress is by one of my best friends, she designed it, her label LNZclothing is coming out soon. It's got little dog prints on it, I actually met the dog two days ago and he's featured on all her clothes which is pretty cool. Then my boots are by Giuseppe Zanotti and my hat is from Rag & Bone."

Would you say you're a designer or a high street girl?

"I like to mix, if I'm wearing a designer dress I'll wear high street shoes, or vice versa. I think it's important to mix. My background, where I'm from, I've never been that girl that's always worn designer because that wasn't my upbringing. It's an honour and a privilege for me to be able to buy nice things and I never take that for granted. I'm a Topshop girl, I love ZARA and I love H&M, and I will forever continue wearing their things. I'm just normal like that."

How often do you go shopping?

"Well, my sister told me I needed a new wardrobe so she went to Topshop the other day and decided to buy nearly everything in the store for me! I had to tell her to take half of it back because it was crazy. But I usually do [my shopping] online because I never have a chance to go out. The majority of things that I buy online, if I don't get them from Topshop then it's ASOS. I find online shopping so much easier."

What key pieces are on your shopping list for autumn?

"I'm a jumper girl, I love them. So I'll probably be buying loads of oversized, baggy jumpers. It does depend how cold it gets, but I'll always have loads of knitwear. It's comfortable and easy."

"[Nods sheepishly] I think I have a fetish for handbags and shoes. All girls do, any girl that says she doesn't is a liar! Whenever someone asks me what I want for my birthday, I say a handbag! There's nothing else I really want."

What's the most expensive handbag you own?

"Probably my two Hermès Birkins. I have one in green and one in blue, and I never really take them out! They just sit in the box. But they do come out on special occasions!"

If you had to ditch all your bags and only keep one, which would it be?

"One that was a gift. One of my best friends bought me one of the Birkins, so I'd probably keep that because it was a present from him."
